Research has shown that living an active lifestyle can be beneficial for your musculoskeletal, pulmonary and cardiovascular health, but there can be a downside. High impact, repetitive physical activity can be taxing on your joints. But did you know that supplementing your diet with enzymes can help protect your joints? Continue reading to learn which enzymes can help protect the health of your joints.
Enzymes are essential to our health, well-being and bodily functioning. There are thousands of unique enzymes, and each plays a specific role in our body. A family of enzymes called proteolytic enzymes perform the function of breaking down protein bonds. This is essential not only for digestion, but also for joint health. These types of enzymes have been the subject of research to better understand how they may help promote joint health. Studies have suggested that proteolytic enzymes may achieve this by supporting the body’s natural mechanisms for healthy inflammatory response, repair and renewal, and joint comfort. They help to break down plasma protein and cellular debris into smaller fragments to help accelerate repair, as they facilitate passage through the lymphatic system more quickly and efficiently.1
You live an active, healthy lifestyle to maintain optimal quality of life. So, make sure to extend your quality of life by protecting your joint health. Even if you aren’t experiencing joint discomfort, be proactive and begin supplementing your diet with enzymes to prevent future problems. This can be as easy as supplementing your diet with Enzymedica’s Repair Gold™ formula. This advance formula combines each of the enzymes proven to support joint health in one easy-to-take supplement.
